The professional billiards PBA team league enters the ‘postseason’ to cover the final throne of the season.
The Professional Billiards Association (PBA∙President Kim Young-soo) will start the postseason of the ‘Welcome Savings Bank PBA Team League 2022-2023’ at the Bitmaru Broadcasting Center in Goyang-si, Gyeonggi-do from the 17th.
The PBA postseason is a place where only the top 4 teams out of the 8 teams that have run hard in one season advance. As it is the last schedule with the final goal in front of the 4 teams that have succeeded in advancing, it is expected to show a different sense of immersion and tension from the regular league.
In the PBA Team League Postseason, the winner/runner-up team of the first half league (Rounds 1-3) and the champion/runner-up team of the second half league (Round 4-6) advance, and the postseason (semi-PO, PO, final) are assigned to the tournament.
Therefore, in this postseason, Hana Card, who placed 3rd in the regular league (winner in the first season) and TS Shampoo∙Pura Chicken (runner-up in the first season), who placed 4th in the regular league, played a semi-playoff, and the winning team played the second place in the regular league, Blue One Resort (late season). league runner-up) and playoffs. The winning team in the playoffs is divided between the first-place Welcome Savings Bank in the regular league (winner in the second season) and the final winning team in the finals.
In the semi-playoffs (2 out of 3) and playoffs (3 out of 4), there is a ‘1 win advantage for the top team in the regular league’. Therefore, in the semi-playoff held on the 17th, Hana Card starts with one win, and in the playoff that follows immediately on the next day (18th), Blue One Resort plays the postseason with one win. The finals will be played in a best-of-seven game with no advantage.
Therefore, in the first round of the semi-playoff, which starts at 4:00 pm on the 17th, if Hana Card, which has a ‘1-win advantage’, wins, it will go straight to the playoffs with 2 wins. Conversely, if TS Shampoo∙Pura Chicken wins, the team that advances to the playoffs will be determined through the second game at 10:00 pm on the same day (17th). 메이저놀이터
The same goes for the playoff schedule, which is played in a best-of-five format. Blue One Resort starts with one win. The first game at 3:00 pm on the 18th and the second game at 8:30 pm on the same day. If Blue One Resort wins 2 wins until the 2nd game, it will go to the finals with 3 wins.
If the playoffs end early as above, the finals will be moved forward to the next day, the 19th. If the playoff teams cannot be identified on the 18th, the playoff game 3 will continue at 1:00 pm on the 19th (6:30 pm if the 4th game is required), and the final will start at 4:00 pm on the 20th.
The team that rises to the top through the postseason will be given a prize money of 100 million won and the runner-up team will be given 50 million won. The MVP who shows the most outstanding performance in the finals will receive a prize of 5 million won.
